I would totally put my face 4 inches from her chest and scream, “I’M SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!” And I’d make a point never to take my eyes off her boobs until she got so uncomfortable and creeped out that she decided to leave, go back home, sit on her bed in the dark, and think about how completely stupid she was to write “STILL NOT ASKING FOR IT” while asking for it.
This woman’s a disgrace.
But she’s not asking for it. This is a human body, nothing more, nothing less. It’s not being sexualized, in fact, she’s covered her nipples too. I’m sorry, h-plus, that you feel that your body and the body of other women should be considered a disgrace. Do you feel uncomfortable when looking at pictures in the doctor’s office of a woman’s naked body? And do you, leftybegone, get uncontrollably horny at the same sight? Control your python (or garden snake), man, you’re not 12. Have some maturity over the matter. If you did that to that woman, leftybegone, you’d just be putting a bad face on us guys, making us seem like sex-crazed, immature horndogs. Maybe you are one, but I’m tired people making that assumption of us as a gender. It’s disgraceful. She wouldn’t think it was stupid of her to do that if you did. You’d just make her movement more powerful.
Rape (noun):the crime of forcing another person to submit to sex acts, especially sexual intercourse.
Men aren’t primal fucking animals. They’re humans that are completely capable of resisting their urges. I bet you (leftybegone) are a kid with some serious hormones since you, obviously, can’t control yourself.
“She was asking for it”. Really? Can you really blame an individual for someone else’s lack of control? The mere fact that a woman is more likely to be assaulted if she wears certain types of clothing does not make it right. She could walk around naked and that still doesn’t excuse rape. The solution to the problem is not for women to “dress less slutty” but for men to realize that a woman’s choice of dress is not an open invitation to sexual assault.

but then again, its kind like putting a meat suit on and telling a shark not to eat you
We (men) are not fucking sharks!
We are not rabid animals living off of pure instinct
We are capapble of rational thinking and understanding.
Just because someone is cooking food doesn’t mean you’re entitled to eat it.
Just because a banker is counting money doesn’t mean you’re being given free money.
Just because a person is naked doesn’t mean you’re entitled to fuck them.
You are not entitled to someone else’s body just because it’s exposed.
What is so fucking difficult about this concept?
I think it’s amusing that you have one half of tumblr who just get it and understand that rape is caused by rapists and nothing more than that. And then you have the other half, as you can see above, who are just still so fucking ignorant and oblivious to their own stupidity. How are you functioning in society with this view of the world. How.
If I were a man, I would be fucking repulsed and completely offended if someone used the whole “oh, it’s hormones/instinct/human nature” excuse. Bullshit. Men are humans. With functioning brains and the capability to make clear, calculated decisions. A naked woman does not change that. Nudity/scantily-clad bodies do NOT excuse rape. Rape. Is. Never. Okay.
I hope people realise that there is no such thing as “Asking for rape” because the whole idea of asking for rape completely contradicts the definition of rape. It’s not rocket science.
Me escaping from the patriarchy
Advertising is based on one thing: happiness. And do you know what happiness is? Happiness is the smell of a new car. It’s freedom from fear. It’s the billboard on the side of a road that screams with reassurance that whatever you’re doing is okay. You are okay. -- Donald Draper, Mad Men
I’ve put together this collection of recent sexist advertisements from different companies. To be honest, it was difficult to pick the ones I wanted because there were so many of them. It was truly abhorrent.
Donald Draper explains to us what advertising is. Its a stroking of the ego. Sexism and patriarchy are rampant within society (advertising also touches on things like race, body size, and social class but for the purposes of this post I am focusing on those two), and thus advertising capitalizes on that, makes money on it, and perpetuates it. We’re surrounded by this kind of advertising. We can’t escape it, we’re trapped.
So when shopping or flipping through a magazine, or even driving down the high way and reading billboards, let’s all remember to put our critical thinking hats on and to identify and call out the sexism. Advertising is a significant contributor to the continued social injustices. But remember: those problems come to an end with us. If we stop responding to these advertisements the way the companies want us to, then some real reform can begin.
This was thoroughly disturbing…I used to think I’d never get in a frame of mind where I could always pick up on these kinds of things. Now I see them everywhere. I see it in kids shows, in commercials, in movies and everywhere really. It’s upsetting but in order to guard myself, and to guard my children against these messages, I must make myself aware, as painful as it is.
“Turning a person into a thing is almost always the first step in justifying violence against that person.”
If a report of mugging was treated like a report of rape.
Trigger Warning: Rape
Disclaimer: People also need to be aware about rape victims who are men, however in this video, I mostly refer to women and how rape culture affects them.
- Why they are dangerous
- Statistics and Rape Culture
- Make fun of the culture, not the victim
- Freedom of speech

You pair of Adventure Time cuties you :D
You were always a fighter and I know you fought as hard as you could to stay alive, I know you didn’t want to disappoint Emily and you were looking forward to go on that trip with us, but your heart fought long enough to see us one last time. I am so thankful that you made it here, that you left this planet having seen us, you died here… among family and not alone in Peru when who knows how and when you would’ve been found. It happened a bit slowly so we could see you KNOWING it would be the last time we held your hand or kissed your forehead. You were a very generous man, even when you had nothing to give people you gave all you could. You loved to make people laugh, you loved to laugh, you loved the arts and you believed in freedom and justice. You loved your kids intensely… your love for us was powerful enough to get you here and see us one last time.
I forgive you, Dad. I love you, Dad. I hope you’re at peace, I hope you’re smiling.
